International Tourist Guide Day – 2020
The International Tourist Guide Day was celebrated at the Sri Lanka Institute of Tourist Guide Lecturers (SLINTGL) with an event centred around the proposal to have Parakrama Samudraya declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ingenious reservoir, considered the apex of Sri Lanka’s ancient irrigation system, was built in the 12th century CE in the then capital city of Polonnaruwa, located in north-central Sri Lanka.
Lesser known Colombo
We recently concluded a new 3-day workshop themed Lesser Known Colombo, successfully. It was a novel way to discover the city based on a treasure hunt, which was fun and very educational to the participants. The program was sponsored by Goethe-Institut of Sri Lanka, therefore was free of cost to the participating SLINTGL members. Due to its popularity we hope to make this an annual event focused on different cultural cities to highlight lesser known facets of those cities.
Workshop on Related Laws and Regulations for Tour Guiding
A workshop for SLINTGL members on Related Laws and Regulations for Tour Guiding was conducted at the Institute on 26th Nov. 2019
